Red Hat Linux Fedora: Fedora 13 to Fedora 14(64) upgrade.

In this upgrade, I planned to skip a version to see how things go jumping up two levels.  Unfortunately reading this post from The Register about Linus Torvalds had me thinking back to F14 again.  (This brings back fond memories of the KDE 4.0 desktop upgrade issues in F9 that didn't go so well.  I […]

Red Hat Linux Fedora: Fedora 12 to Fedora 13 upgrade.

Fedora 13 has been out now since around May 25th, so it's time for the semi annual upgrade.  Unlike with previous versions, I've now switched to the GNOME desktop since I have been finding the KDE desktop to be far less intuitive then it's former competitor and far less responsive.  (As you recall from the […]

Red Hat Linux Fedora: Fedora 11 to Fedora 12 upgrade.

Fedora 12 has been out of the oven since about Nov 17 so it's high time I upgrade before it spoils.  As with the previous release, I look forward to any new features in KDE 4.3.  (As you recall from the previous upgrades, KDE was introduced rewritten almost entirely in Qt4).  Also noteworthy to mention is the […]

Red Hat Linux Fedora: Fedora 10 to Fedora 11 upgrade.

Well, Fedora 11 has been out for some time now.  And though I've been coping with the new KDE 4.0 deployment, my general experience has left me somewhat unsatisfied, though sure enough, there are good points about it.  Somehow I don't feel alone but can't help stick with it.  After all, KDE 4.0 is a COMPLETE rewrite of KDE […]

Linux / Akonadi: The QtSQL driver ‘QMYSQL’ is required by your current Akonadi server configuration.

PROBLEM Another day brings another bug. This time it's with the Akonadi server failing or unable to start.  This error followed a recent update I've done on my Fedora box.  This is what greeted me each time I started up KDE: The QtSQL driver 'QMYSQL' is required by your current Akonadi server configuration. The following drivers […]

Fedora 10+: UI video / graphics problems upon reboot to Fedora 10+. Graphics are unreadable.

PROBLEM One of the first things that went wrong after upgrading to Fedora 10 was the UI screen was unreadable / undescernable.  The screen was entirely messed up and though the keyboard worked fine, it wasn't easy to discern the UI windows from the shades of red, yellow, blue, green etc grany dots that showed […]

RedHat Linux Fedora: Fedora 9 to Fedora 10 upgrade.

Well folks, it's upgrade time again.  It's been raining releases from Fedora lately, each one coming out almost every 6 months so here we are.  My own installation is over 4 years old and I took it from Fedora 1 to Fedora 10 in that time. (You can search here for the older upgrade procedures)  […]

RedHat Fedora: Fedora 8 to Fedora 9 upgrade.

The Fedora 8 to Fedora 9 upgrade follows the general procedure outlined on the very first Fedora Core upgrade page: RedHat Fedora: Fedora Core 1 to Fedora Core 2 Upgrade .  If you have not already upgraded to F8 please visit  RedHat Fedora: Fedora 7 to Fedora 8 upgrade. page first before going up to […]
